Tigerfish cant breed in temperate waters.. if they were accidentally/deliberately released into US waters they would be able to cope south of the 39th Parallel. They are also very selective feeders and seem to be able to co-exist with most other predators as opposed to fish like the snakehead. Normal Tigerfish (hydrocynus vittatus ) do NOT have a reputation for attacking humans as opposed to pirhana's even though they are related. The Goliath Tigerfish, found in the Congo and other lakes in central Africa however, has been known to attack humans, usually because they were wearing something shiny that the fish mistook for prey.
In my opinion they are the pinnacle of angling, at least in Africa and are easily the most exciting fish ive ever caught. Cant complain in the looks department either ;) they are a beautiful fish.

I agree with jsholland. I hope every country foreign to these monsters keeps them out of their borders. Not just the US.
